Formax FD 6304 Envelope Stuffing MachineHave you ever wondered how bills, invoices, mailers and other material are folded and inserted into envelopes? Perhaps…perhaps not. Whether you need one of these machines, or are simply curious how it works, we now have a video demo available of the Formax FD 6304 folder inserter. This machine is capable of folding and inserting up to 40,000 envelopes per month.

Folding and inserting machine, sometime called envelope-stuffing machines, are completely automated. All you have to do is enter a few settings and place empty envelopes and paper in the feeding trays. The machine does the rest. It literally pulls a sheet from each tray and inserts them into an envelope. The FD 6304 can even lick (with a water applicator) and seal the envelopes shut.

The Formax FD 6304 can single fold and insert up to 10 sheets of paper at once or tri-fold (aka letter fold) and insert up to 8 sheets of paper at once. It operates at a speed of about 3,600 pieces per hour. This machine is perfect for small to large businesses and can even be set up with OMR capabilities (optical mark recognition) for billing and invoicing.

Many people think that a folding and inserting machine is going to be complicated to use or difficult to set up. Formax has put a lot of research into usability and has dramatically simplified the setup procedure. It only takes a few steps to set up a Formax folder inserter. The FD 6304 even has a full-color touchscreen that makes it easy to set up an program up to 25 different jobs.

Formax FD 6202 Folder Inserter Video Demo

Formax FD 6202 Folder InserterHave you ever wondered how businesses are able to fold, insert and mail envelopes on such a wide scale? One of the tools they use is a folder inserter, often called an envelope-stuffing machine. One of the most popular models used today is the Formax FD 6202 folder inserter. We just added a video demo of it to our site, which shows in great detail exactly how it works.

The FD 6202 is available in several different configurations, depending on how many sheets you need inserted into an envelope, and whether or not you need to include an insert or a BRE (business reply envelope). The machine itself, which I have personally used on many occasions, is an amazing piece of engineering. The machine is quiet, fast and takes what would take one individual 30-60 seconds and does it in 1-2 seconds.

This machine essentially takes a sheet of paper, folds it (letter, single, double parallel or accordion) and inserts it into an envelope. It even seals the envelope shut by running the glue on the flap of the envelope over a water-coated surface and folding it shut. This is a great system for mailing invoices, bills, promotional material, bank statements and much more. It can even be integrated with an OMR (optical mark recognition) reader.

This is a video demo of the Formax FD 6202:

The FD 6202 automatic envelope-stuffing machine operates at a speed of about 2,200 pieces per hour and has a monthly duty cycle of 12,000 sheets per month. Larger Formax machines are available for higher volumes. The machine itself is extremely easy to set up thanks to a simple digital interface.

Formax FD 6100 Folder Inserter / Envelope Stuffer Video Demo

Formax FD 6100 Envelope and Paper InserterFolding, inserting, licking and sealing. It’s the four-step mailing process many of you are very familiar with. The only problem with manually folding and inserting mail is that it is very time consuming and can require a lot of people. Automated machines, like the Formax FD 6100 folder inserter, are fast and quickly make up the cost of paying someone to do the job in no time. I had a chance to use this machine a few weeks ago and we shot a video demo.

At first glance, from personal experience, the FD 6100 is a little intimidating. It has several feed trays, an envelope tray, an insert tray and a digital control panel. It probably only took me about 5 minutes to familiarize myself with the machine. Once I had everything figured out, I was surprised just how easy the Formax FD 6100 was to use.

I ended up creating a letter fold using a #10 business envelope. I placed two separate stacks of paper in the machine (for multi-sheet folding & inserting) and put the envelopes in the back. Once I told the machine what I wanted it to do, it took just seconds to complete the process.

Sometimes seeing a machine in use is easier that trying to describe it. We ended up shooting a video demonstration of my experience which I am including in this post.

I hope that video clearly depicts just how nice this machine is. I personally recommend it to any small business that has light to medium-volume folding and inserting needs.
